In App purchases do not remove adds
I use this on my iPad and iPhone i use many paid apps for stargazzing etc but this no frills app is one of my faves. However having said that i felt that i would one like to remove the adds and two support the developer having used it for quite some time, but youll find that once removed they still appear on the iPad version with no clear way of being able to "restore purchase" i would give this a 4/5 but based on the lack of developer website support and adds unable to be removed this gets a 2/5 for now
It's brilliant. For the first time I know with confidence what planet and which stars I am looking at. I just don't get all the negative comments that others have written. If it's slow and jerky then that's your Internet connection; doh! This app works seamlessly on wifi & 3G. Those complaining about adverts? Well it is only a small banner at the foot of the screen and can be easily ignored. Ps it works during the daytime too !
I'm with others as to what do you do with this. I didnt expect a telescope function but ....I thought you pointed the screen at your local night sky and what was visible would be explained. I get the same info indoors and the constellations etc on screen bear no resemblance to what you can see in the night sky. Bit of a waste of time really as it seems to tell you what should be there with that map reference rather than what you can actually see. Thank heavens ( sorry) I didn't pay for this.
